It's felt like an eternity but Westworld season 2 will finally debut on April 20!

So what did you guys think of the season 2 opener? Besides the plethora of death I am really intrigued how the show will expand into the world outside of the Westworld park.

Is this even on Earth? We don’t know.

Going to try to wait the end of the season, or at least midseason, and then subscribe. Probably won't make it if I keep clicking links about it with potential spoilers, but that's on me. LOL
Looking forward to it though. It was slow to start last year, but it didn't disappoint.

I've been hearing a lot about this lately. Guess it's time to give season one a try.

Here's my take on the show.


If you really like Blade Runner and the new Battlestar Galactica you will like Westworld.

They all share many of the same themes.

Interesting, sounds like a winner. BSG is one of my top 3 favorite shows of all time!

So now we have an “India World” in addition to the already suspected “Samurai World”. Fascinating.

Last night’s episode was stunningly good and the best one so far of this second season.

Did anyone here watch last night’s episode besides me?

A few observations:

This show goes all out on the violence but the sex is very tame by comparison.

Is Maeve coming like Neo from the Matrix?

How far exactly did Maeve have to walk to get to Shogun World? You see a completely different geography in the background compared to Westworld.

Yep, we do like our violence to be extreme but get pretty squeamish when it comes to depiction of sex.

Wow, what a roller coaster this season has been. Last week with Shogun World. I am still firing up youtube to watch the two "Paint it Black" robbery scenes side by side.

Now, this week. I'm still trying to wrap my brain around what has all been laid out. From Dolores giving Bernard the "Fidelity Test" to the train. Really didn't surprise me when I saw Ford's greyhound.

Have you seen the preview for next week episode?

And I hope Bernard stays in this series 'till the very end, a very interesting character and I really like the way he brings his character to the screen, great actor.

Also like Peter Mullan in the show, pity it was only for a couple of episodes, he is a great actor also, he was amazing in the mini series "The Fear", about a ganster boss that got Alzheimer and slowly losing his mind.

Season 2 has been very interesting and enjoyable for me so far. I just keep thinking to myself "where does the story go from here in season 3?"

We already know that the big show down between Delos and the renegade hosts will happen for sure before the end of this season which means that either all of the hosts are wiped out and Delos starts over from scratch or somehow some of the hosts escape destruction and continue fighting a guerrilla war. If it's the latter, I think you can only stretch out that plot for so long before it starts to become stale.

Sweet Dolores certainly turned into a cold hearted beeotch. Good show. Definately has me hooked.

Free will can sometimes be a curse!

I get the feeling that she regrets to some extent what she did to Teddy.

I'll say this much: Westworld is the first show that I've watched where I've needed to watch each episode twice just to make sure I understand what is going on. The multiple timelines can get very confusing if you don't stay on top of it.

Holy cow. Did anyone watch the season 2 finale? What a mind trip!!

Now to wait until 2020 for season 3. Ugh.

I like the show a lot.

That being said, enough with the timeline jumpon already. Its just needlessly making it confusing. Its the whole...we get it Bruce Willis is a ghost thing...but you don't need that twist in every movie. It got old fast

I'll be very curious to see if the multiple timeline thing will be mostly dropped for season 3. We'll find out in just two short years!
